By the way the XRCD24 logo ..., 20 Sept 2015 [cached]
By the way the XRCD24 logo can be found more and more often on Combak Corporation products-one should know that Mr Kiuchi is a co-owner of XRCD technology, too.
Mr Kiuchi chose this name for his new interconnect to emphasize that this is a new generation of product, a very important one for its creator. This interconnect belongs to the top line called Million and replaces the previous top models from Harmonix Golden Performance line. Already its look suggests that it belongs to the top line-similarly colored sleeve and wooden elements are a clear resemblance to Harmonix X-DC Studio Master Million Maestro power cord, that we recently reviewed and that proved to be absolutely remarkable.
As usually Mr Kiuchi doesn't share information about the design. I asked him once why he offered so few information about his products that were based on certain technologies and solutions and he told me that bragging about technical details was a mistake because all that really mattered was music: „whenever a product does not fulfill its primary role, which is conveying music in the best possible way (at particular price level of course), it doesn't matter at all how much one would know about the design, materials, parameters and so on". One can agree with such approach or not, but it is a clear statement of Mr Kiuchi's philosophy.

Harmonix cables are well known around the audio world for one, due to the sound quality they offer, and secondly because of their creator, Mr Kiuchi.
Mr Kiuchi has been using this policy of small improvements, of taking one step at a time for years and it was a wise choice and a good decision.
The new Mr Kiuchi's interconnect offers amazingly open sound.
It might be a worthy culmination of Mr Kiuchi's work and I am sure that JVC Victor studio that is using these cables now will offer even better XRCD24 than ever before.

To bring out a sense of originality, Billion Media decided to establish an audio room dedicated to the Reimyo brand and allow more audiophiles to experience the tuning skills of Kazuo Kiuchi, who is the CEO of Combak.
However, Kiuchi also said that he was a bit surprised when he saw the place because the reflection surfaces in the bi-level are not very easy to work with. Fortunately, he had visited the place during its decoration phase, and requested the designer to use certain materials for certain areas (common construction materials rather than dedicated acoustic materials).
Kiuchi then conducted tuning after the decoration was completed, thus achieving the current acoustic performance.
Kiuchi's Gourmet Dessert
The systems installed on the scene included a Reimyo CDP-777 CD player, CAT-777 pre-amplifier and power amplifier, an ALS-777 power supply, and the Bravo! Consequence speakers which were exhibited in CES (there are only two pairs of these speakers in the world). How much does Kiuchi value the Taiwanese market? You have found an answer when you know that both pairs of Bravo! Consequence speakers are in Taiwan. Naturally, the entire room was covered with Harmonix acoustic sheets, all the cables used were made by Harmonix, and the power supply was made by Enacom. Kiuchi even treated the guests to some desserts he made himself before he left Japan for Taiwan.

According to Combak's president, Kazuo Kiuchi, 70 percent of the components used in the player were specifically designed for the application.
My hat is off to Kazuo Kiuchi and the rest of the Reimyo's design team.Well done.
At last year's event, Reimyo Chief ..., 1 April 2012 [cached]
At last year's event, Reimyo Chief Mr. Kazuo Kiuchi demonstrated some outstanding sound using all Combak/Reimyo products. However, I was shocked to see a solid-state amplifier in his set-up rather than the usual 300B tube amplifier. Apparently, Kiuchi felt that given the difficulty of getting NOS tubes, he could produce more power and better sound with a solid-state design. The new KAP-777 stereo power amplifier powered the system effortlessly with great authority and delicacy. I really enjoyed the sound of the KAP-777 and wanted to explore it more fully in my own listening environment. I kept in touch with Kiuchi in hopes of possibly doing a review in the near future. In August of 2011, I finally received an email from Kiuchi requesting I review his newest offerings in the Reimyo KAP-777 amplifier and CAT-777 MKII preamp - as a system.
The KAP-777 is Kiuchi's newest design and the first solid-state power amplifier to hail from the Combak Corporation. In previous discussions, Kiuchi was always a strong advocate of tube designs. Obviously, to see a transistor amp coming out of his camp was entirely off the radar for me. His acclaimed PAT-777 300B power amp is a remarkable product but was a low-power design, producing only 8-watts per channel. Coupled to efficient loudspeakers such as horns, it was magic. But for real-world acceptance, I think more power was required. The KAP-777 was designed and manufactured in a process Kiuchi calls "High Tech Fusion. This was a collaboration of four audio and recording studio technology leaders. The players involved were Mr. T. Kuwaoke, president and inventor of the K2 technology; Mr. Michael Edinger, recording studio engineer; Kiuchi and T. Iseki, are both the co-inventors of the Harmonix resonance control technology (Kiuchi san, in addition to heading the Combak Corporation also runs Harmonix Corp. which produces cables and resonance control devices).
It's very stable and perfectly balanced over the entire frequency range," boasts Kiuchi. A single MOSFET output transistor handles the positive, and another handles the negative, "seeking to remain true to the original sound quality of any recording" says Kiuchi.
Moreover, Kiuchi assured me no burn-in was done at the factory and recommended I let the system play for a week before any serious listening was started.

Mr. Kiuchi, the owner of Reimyo (and of Hamonix, Bravo!, and Enacom; co-originator and co-owner of XRCD patents), mentally a Samurai and the master of kendo by choice, believes that it is worth doing it. His system, which consists of the CDP-777 transport and DAP-999EX Limited DAC is one of the best products of this type in the world. The transport uses the flagship Philips CD Pro-2M mechanism that now falls out of production, and the DAC employs the K2 processor Mr. Kiuchi is particularly attached to, both on the recording and mastering side.
That is exactly the same thing we get, in a consumer form, with the Limited DAC version from Mr. Kiuchi.

A few words with…
Kazuo Kiuchi, Combak Corporation - owner
Kazuo Kiuchi: The Limited upsamples the input signal twice higher than the older DAC version - we now have 176.4 kHz instead of 88.2 kHz.
The DAC from Mr. Kiuchi does it effortlessly each and every time.
On the one side, let's put the box with an analog remaster produced by Mr. Kiuchi (released by Hi-Q Records), and on the other side any EMI digital remaster.
Mr. Kazuo Kiuchi is a supporter of tube designs, keen to use so-called audio accessories - anti-vibration spacers, racks, cables, mains-related components and others.
